If she couldn't be bothered to ask the hotel about any other groups staying there, then it's too bad, lady.  It's not the management's job to babysit you.

Silverstaff: Mister Peejay: ...And now, someone is going to go see who got married that weekend in that city, cross reference it to known hotel executives, then go to their house and poop on the lawn or something.  A really rancid, watery, "my god what did I eat that my body created such a horror" poop the likes of which the world has not seen before or since.

Here's some more details: http://en.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/The_15_Yahren_Reunion

October 15-17 1993, Universal City Hilton, Los Angeles CA.

Apparently Hilton published an apology in the July 15, 1995 issue of Starlog magazine (i.e. almost 2 years later).

Probably should have researched it more before posting, but that's some dates and places to the story of the BSG convention sabotaged by hotel management.


Wow.  still unacceptable. guess have to read up to find out if the hotel did actual outreach instead of a pr apology.

boozehat: A few years back the company I worked for had our yearly worldwide sales kick off in San Jose at the Doubletree right by SJC airport.  The 2nd to last day of our event started Furcon.

It was pretty much the funniest things I have seen.... the guys from Japan really were impressed as well.

I got to meet that cat guy before he an-hero'ed himself, which was neat.




Wait - this guy killed himself? But he seemed so stable.

machodonkeywrestler: enik: Wow, reading through these comments it's clear that Fark has LOTS of furries and furry apologists. Yikes. As if most of you weren't pathetic enough already.

As opposed to losers who randomly comment on others' sexual preferences?


This is Fark. We're all losers in some way or other here (otherwise, we wouldn't be here!)

hockeychick: Methinks this woman is full of shiat.  My guess is that she and her snowflakes got there, saw a few people who were dressed in fursuits and freaked out.  How many people do you know who randomly swear at children?  Unless you grew up in my house not many.  And the claim that she never saw the general manager, I guarantee that if the furries were making that much of a ruckus that manager would be there in a heartbeat with cops in tow to calm the fur love-in down.

And if she thinks that's bad try going to New Orleans on Labor Day weekend.  On your honeymoon.


Ran into something like this in July when I was at a Sci-Fi con.  An older couple's daughter was screaming at management for not telling them a con was going on the same weekend she'd booked her parents' 50th wedding anniversary.  Her entire family now had to put up with what she described as escapees from an insane asylum and how was she going to explain to her kids all the women walking around half-dressed??  (The most scantily-clad women were a few Slave Leias and a couple of Mirror/Mirror Star Trek uniforms).

6 months later, when we were near the same location for another con, found out she'd started up a writing campaign to have the hotel dismissed from the chain & all the employees fired.

/Mundanes at a con are inevitable.  Most congoers keep their distance.
//More often than not, the Mundanes end up joining in on the fun.

As much as I dont want to I have to agree with her. This makes about as much sense as scheduling a KKK and Black Panther conventions together. Not to say it wouldn't be entertaining.
 
2013-02-24 11:56:47 AM
Hah. I hope she catches the con crud going around that con.

I am in Vegas myself for a brony con.

Arumat: Repo Man: I'd be curious to see what happened if, through some odd circumstance, you had a large gathering of furries and juggaloes at the same place and time. Would a juggalo furry be the most hated creature on the internet?

I think the most hated creature on the internet would have to be a juggalo furry/brony that happened to be a lawyer/cop/politician in their daily life.


I know a furry juggalo.

He's ok... Not, you know, stable, but he is a nice enough guy.

OscarTamerz: What kind of idiotic hotel books a convention of sexual deviants? If the the Giant Dildos and Donkey Lovers of America called for convention acommadations wouldn't that give them pause? How about NAMBLA? Everybody that reads this and goes, "Furry fun spot, how about no?" is well served by the review and the apparent loss of business that got them to contact the reviewer is very much deserved by the hotel.


The kind of hotel that loves money. Lots and lots of money.

/When "deviants" (I disagree with the use of that term, but whatever) have an event of the magnitude of the Pittsburgh con (Or Dragoncon, or PENNSIC, or a decent fetish con) they save for weeks or months and bring a shiatton of disposable cash that they don't plan on going home with. As a businessperson in the area you would be a FOOL not to cater to them. You never know, you might just have your ideals opened up a bit...

Having trouble deciding on this. Cheer moms are incredibly annoying, but having slept with one I would probably do it again. Furries would give me a good laugh, but get on my nerves eventually as well. 

I wish I had something positive to say about Furry/Brony culture, but I have yet to meet one in real life that would give me a reason to do so. Sure there's plenty of stable ones online, but then again we can be whatever we want. Let me just for once meet a Furry/Brony that wasn't a neckbeard virgin that has poor hygiene and still lives with with their folks even though they are between the ages of 25-45. My ex-roomate was a Brony. I gave him his 30 days notice after he made the case pedophiles are just confused and needed treatment, not jail time.

mrswood: The hotel really should warn guests of any conventions going on that could make for unhappy guests, if only to avoid all of the future problems. I worked in reservations at a big hotel chain and I remember having to advise people of gay rodeo conventions and whatnots.

But if I was this reviewer I would have gone to management, demanded a refund and switched hotels.


My father in law likes to tell a story about how when on a business trip him and his partner were booked in a hotel hosting a gay rodeo convention.

He was amused.

baka-san: I'm not sure what would be worse: a hotel filled with furries or a hotel filled with cheerleader moms.


We stayed in a hotel at the beach during off season last year...there was a cheerleader convention going on that same weekend. Our hotel was full of annoying screaming shrieking little shiats...and their kids!
NEVER again will I book without making sure the convention is some other weekend.

KrispyKritter: wife has worked for a multiple chain name hotel franchisor for nearly 25 years. few years back one of their upscale name brand locations hosted simultaneous conventions for a important business holdings group and a huge amount of furries. there was so much backlash the hotel was locked out of the 1-800 reservation system, everything with the hotel brand name was removed from the premises including the sign cans out front and the owner was slapped with a lawsuit. contractual agreements can run deep and wide.


Sounds like the furries really gave it to the hotel chain due to those business yahoos.

So people with mental issues about sexuality that have never committed a crime need to be locked up instead of receiving counseling?

CSB,

I used to work in the nicest hotel in a small city, which hosted its fair share of conventions.  My very first day of working there as a bellboy, it was a Star Trek convention.  My job that day was to take food to all of the VIPs, which was most of the main cast of the original series (minus Kirk and McCoy).  First on the list was Uhura.  She was very nice and quiet.  Next was Checkov.  He was rude to me, basically telling me to set the food on the dresser and get out.  After that was the inimitable Mr. Sulu himself.  He answered the door in a towel.  This was before he came out, and it was awkward, but he was super nice.  Finally, it was Scotty.  He was as drunk as a skunk and complained about all of the costumed weirdo convention attendees to me for like 10 minutes.  He was cool.  Later in the evening, there was an obvious whore hanging around the lobby.  My boss told me I was going to have to ask her to leave, and just as I was working up the courage to do that, Checkov comes down and escorts her back to his room.

This happened to me when I went back to Indy for my best friend's wedding.  It's weird, but I thought they were all respectful.  Didn't have a problem with the furries at all.  There was even a family of furries.  The daughter was like 8 or so.  I'm sure when she gets older, she'll probably think her parents are so freaking weird.

Why do I get the feeling that if anyone had complained about the behavior of a bunch of cheerleaders/children that this mother would be absolutely indignant about it.

By the way lady, I'd rather deal with the furies than a bunch of cheerleaders.

I doubt it.  Nothing in that story sounds outlandish, especially about the general manager.  Why would he want to risk kicking that many people out, losing all that profit and risking multiple lawsuits for profiling?  And considering that the manager wanted to speak privately, I think it is more likely he was afraid of being called out for discrimination if he gave his reasoning rather than thinking he was going to get a public tongue lashing from this woman.  Also, I imagine it's possible her children were being fairly disrespectful towards the furries (though, quite frankly, who can blame them?), which might explain the frustration the furries were showing these kids, but the furries are still adults and shouldn't be yelling obscenities at kids they don't know.

Besides, look at how well that review is written.  Outside of a typo or two, it is coherent and calmly written.  You seem to be placing the kind of doubt on on this that one would put on a raving, frantic rant.

Ultimately, this shows why there is a line between public and private.  People can say "I'm just being me", but the people they are may be a bit in-your-face, and that is never excusable.

FTLink: Descended from American Indians, Avner liked to go by his Indian name 'Stalking Cat.'
He said felt inspired after a discussion with a Native chief who inspired him to 'follow the ways of the tiger.'


Ah.  So, another "Look at me!  I'm a real Indian!  And I know a chief!  [Chief nowhere to be found, by the way.]  And I have a real Indian Name!  And I'm so damn special, the chief gave me this life mission that's so spiritual and connected and it has nothing to do with getting attention!  Look!  LOOK!  LOOK AT ME, DAMN YOU, LOOOOOOOOOOOOK!!!"

Part of me feels bad for him because he was obviously unbalanced and needed help.  But seriously - where's the line between "Attention whore - Ignore and Laugh at Their Impotent Rage" and "Farked Up, Needs an Intervention"?  This guy definitely crossed it, but at what point?

No kidding huh?  He actually seemed pretty level headed while I spoke with him; but then again, he probably was just comfortable in his environment at the time.  Headed back to reality must have been a biatch.

Dunno about Furries, but the hotel I work for had hosted kid's sports teams before and they're a bunch of thieving little hellions. If the Furries were *really* acting up as described (I don't know any and have never been around them), our GM would've spoken with the group contact, warned them against further complaints and sent them packing (with a refund) if it happened again. Can't say the same for the other chains I've worked for, but this one seems to have its shiat together.

If you are at a hotel with an unexpected convention the hotel staff should do all they can to separate the normal guests from convention goers, most at the convention think all are there for rowdy behavior and thats usually wrong. Spring break was the only exception.
